Melksham police return stolen bike found on eBay
7:00pm Sunday 15th September 2013 in Melksham
Police in Melksham will reunite a stolen motocross bike with its owner, after it was tracked down on auction website eBay.
Alun Roberts’s KTM 125, worth more than £3,000, was taken from his home in Swindon in February 2012, but then he saw it for sale online.
He said: “I had three bikes stolen from my workshop last year and every week I log on to eBay.”
The bike’s seller, who lives in Wiltshire, had no idea it had been stolen and agreed to hand it over to the police in Melksham, who will now return it to Mr Roberts.
